Karnal, Feb. 13 -- Three persons were on Tuesday arrested for abducting and killing a 52-year-old property dealer from Panipat, Naresh Sharma.

The accused are Pulkit Madan, Chetan and Sunil Kumar.

Cops said Pulkit had taken Rs.15 lakh from Naresh in 2018, Rs.8 lakh of which he returned.

On being unable to pay back the remaining amount, Pulkit, along with his friends, hatched a conspiracy to kill Naresh.

They have confessed to strangling Naresh to death on the evening of February 6.

Naresh's car was two days later fished out of a canal near Karnal's Budhanpur village.

Panipat DSP Vijender Singh said the accused had kept his body in his car and later dumped it in Avardhan canal. However, the police haven't recovered Naresh's body yet. ...
